Windows 7: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

27 Feb 2013   #430

Win7 Professional x64

well, I just ran it again, it said Windows Resource Protection didn't find any integrity violations. Is it still plausible to run it to detect errors?

That message means that it didn't find anything wrong with your system files.

Hello Notis,

Please go ahead and post back with your uploaded sfcdetails.txt file from OPTION THREE, and we'll take a look at them to see what all it did.

Hello Brink and thank you..
I didn't want to "bother" you, for a deep analyse...because soon (hoping..), I'll clean install...
But, very often (maybe always!) I see in cbs.log this "event" of -Move file....Destination...
...and I wanted to learn "at least"..what is about...Also I am sure other people have the same question...
...So I post the cbs.log where I see this procedure...and I attach also the sfcdetail.txt you asked, where..(surprise!) just ONE!..only repair....I'm very interested to get any information...about..
Thanks again...

The SFC log shows that it found the file below corrupted. It was able to repair it, so you're all good.
That file is for MUI Language pack cleanup.

2. In the elevated command prompt, copy and paste the command below, and press Enter. (See screenshot below)
NOTE: This will place a sfcdetails.txt file on your desktop with only the SFC scan result details from the CBS.LOG in it.
when I opened the file sfcdetails.txt in notepad it was empty, is that right?
